Round One

Well, I finally finished round one of this little quilt (approx. 29" X 29").  If you remember, I've been experimenting with fabrics and finally settled on the scrappy look.  I just happened to have some scraps lying around and dug right in.  After making several groups of half square triangles, I couldn't help myself.....I started a couple of rows just to make sure that I'd like this design.
I like to take pictures during the process and review them as I go along.....this really helps to see any mistakes but, alas, there are times when you still don't see what's wrong.
I decided to make this quilt small because I really like the looks of the smaller quilts. In this way, you can hang more around the house, drape them over the sofa, use them as table runners and whatever else you can think of.
The blocks are 2 1/2" squares and HS.  I did try to not look at each one as I sewed them together.  There are a few of the same one together but you really can't tell.  I'm happy the way things turned out.
The next round is going to be a dark stopping strip followed by a little surprise...so stay tuned.

I had to smile..."happened to have some scraps lying around" :) This is pretty and I love the scrapy feel of it. 2 1/2" HST!!! Are you using Thangles? Those are tiny blocks!

I think it will be wonderful when you finish!

What a fun design. I make a lot of smaller quilts for the reasons you mentioned AND because I can quilt them myself. Big ones need to go to a long-armer and long-armers' work is expensive!!! (I know their prices are well-deserved, but sometimes I just don't have that extra money available...so smaller is better for me right now.)
